Food for Friends

The Food For Friends weekly soup kitchen at Second Presbyterian Church of Rahway was started in February, 1991. The soup kitchen serves a hot meal to 65-130 people every Saturday, beginning at 12 noon. Six teams of volunteers operate the kitchen. Each team shops for, and prepares, lunch once every six weeks. Lunch consists of meat, vegetable and/or salad, a starch, dessert and coffee, iced tea with fresh or canned fruit.

The food distribution operates on a monthly basis, the last full week of the month, usually the third week. Over 200 bags of food, packed and distributed by volunteers, are given out according to the number of people in any given family. The bags contain proteins, soups, vegetables, fruit, starches, dry milk and various other items.

Holiday programs include a traditional Thanksgiving Day Dinner with all the trimmings, a Christmas breakfast complete with gifts from Santa on Christmas morning and a visit from the Easter Bunny over Easter weekend.
